WHEN WE ARE ASKED TO FORGIVE SOMEONE WHO HURT US DEEPLY

Image

!FORGIVENESS!

Hello Folks,

I was recently challenged to forgive someone who hurt me deeply.  I honestly did not want to forgive this person.  I honestly wanted this person to be tied to a stake and burned slowly. However, the Spirit of God, which stills hovers within me..say NO..FORGIVE-VENGEANCE is MINE!!

I told the person that I will forgive them because I want to remain in right fellowship with GOD. If it were left up to me I would still be trying to tie them up and set the stake on fire.. Tell the truth do you any of you feel this way? Have any of you ever wanted to just smash the hand of the person that stole from you or cut out the tongue of someone that lied on you?? Tell the truth.. I know some of you have felt this way..

So I must be honest and say that as I move forward the devil continually tries to lasso me with pain and bitterness…pulling me backward to that place deep within the abyss.  I will pray and fast if I must to break free because this evil one is not worthy of all the energy needed to remain bitter.

There are such better things to do with all the newly found energy I have from working out..

WHEN A GOD WHO ALWAYS ADDS- ALLOWS LOSS

WHEN A GOD WHO ALWAYS ADDS

ALLOWS LOSS

OF LIFE..LOVE..HEALTH

NOW WHAT???

Hello Folks,

I decided that since I had to miss my workout today that I would write a bit.  I was wondering what we could discuss. Hmmm…I was thinking about how we handle it when something we were planning doesn’t happen the way we planned. Examples of this are listed below:

 MISCARRIAGE Image

This is one of the most difficult things that we plan and if it does not happen as we have planned.. it is devastating.  Many women who experience this type of loss never forget.  The fear of loosing another baby is unbearable.  Let us pray for those of us who have had to live with this type of loss.  Father, thank you healing our broken hearts and for adding life to our lives again.  Thank you Lord that though there was mourning you will turn it into dancing.. Amen..

DEATH Image

When one dies, we have been praying and praying and praying. They get better and then the worst thing ever happens. What? They die.  They leave us after we have prayed and just know that they will not.  I can not say much on this topic because as a child, my grannie died.  I was 10 years old and yes..I prayed and was sure that she would live even though she told me she would not.  She was ready to meet the Lord.  I wanted her to stay with me and well, she left.  She died and I was crushed.  My grannie who I called ‘Gran Mo’ was gone to be with the Lord.  She taught me how to bake biscuits and how to cook cakes.  How to shell peas and snap beans. She was my hero and my champion..and she was sick and did not want to live any longer. She left and I was left in the world without her..Oh my God, the memory of it all …it seems like yesterday.  I will stop discussing this topic now….

BROKEN ENGAGEMENTS

Image

You have been dating for awhile, and everyone says you two look great together.  You start to believe it..then he pops the question.  You start planning the wedding and buying stuff.  You announce it to your friends and then the worst thing happens..he breaks the engagements off. Leaves you..or does something that you can’t forgive..or well you think you can’t.  

We will continue with other things that cause us to think that God is wrong or that he must made a mistake..However, please remember that no matter how painful the loss is..we can heal and rise again..

Coyfee signing off for now..

 

ALWAYS COMPLAINING…WHAT’S WRONG?

LACK OF CONTENTMENT

contentment2

Salutations!

I was just pondering why it seems as though the world was against me. Nothing was right, not enough money, not enough time, not enough quiet. Nothing was right.. I was just complaining about everything..Jeez..Why was it that the hopes and dreams that I used to cling to were now so far away? Well what happens when I ask the Holy Spirit a question about me…He answers quickly.  

The answer ..LACK OF CONTENTMENT.. Contentment as mentioned above is the ability to be satisfied with what you have. The LACK OF IT-not being satisfied..not being able to appreciate what you have because you are spending so much time complaining about what you don’t.  It is the ability to be able to appreciate what the Lord has given you without loosing site of what the Lord has already blessed you with.

When we find ourselves complaining..complaining..and yes, complaining even more.. we open the door to a LACK OF CONTENTMENT. We compare yesterday with what GOD is attempting to give us today. David wrote ” I have learned to become quiet even as a weaned child…” Read below..

<< Psalm 131 >>
GOD’S WORD ® Translation
 

1 [A song by David for going up to worship.] O LORD, my heart is not conceited. My eyes do not look down on others. I am not involved in things too big or too difficult for me.2 Instead, I have kept my soul calm and quiet. My soul is content as a weaned child is content in its mother’s arms.

I also want to remind you of the story of the Isrealites leaving Egypt. They wanted to go back..They complained because there was not meat..REALLY..after being a slave to want to go back to slavery. Honestly believing that slavery was better than being free. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

contentment3

Let’s try to find a place of contentment..a place of solace.  I have included the above scripture to offer comfort in you have found yourself complaining about the things that are not how you would have them be.contentment

Friends, we need to always try to remember that we have so much..Life..Health..Strength..Love and the ability to love..HOPE..and above all

FAITH

Be encourage as I continue to share my life’s experiences with you..

Coyfee out..

LOVE YA!!!

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!ANGER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

hulk

!!!!!!!!!!!!ANGER!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello folks,

For those that remember this tv show-Hulk; I felt just like him.  How out of control he would get when he got angry. He, David Bannerman, would turn into this huge green monster. He would destroy everything in its place..mostly the bad guy. Nevertheless, he would try with all his might to control the anger which would escalate to rage. However, he never could.  

Now I wasn’t that bad but boy I felt like I was close. So here’s the skinny on what happened earlier today.

Oh my goodness, I am so very angry right now. I went to visit a frequent chat room today. Nothing to deep but there was this lady in the room that decided to pick on me. She was talking about my pictures and posting them the room. I became so angry that I could hardly contain it. I need a scripture to calm me down and what I was finally able to receive was “be angry and sin not..”

I wanted to use profanity.. just destroy her with my words but the Lord reminded me of who I am. Now don’t get me wrong there is nothing wrong with the pictures but she desperate to discredit me. I am a full curvy woman ..no shame to that. I love good food and never over do it. I however love to play with the camera so I take a lot of pictures. I have had this profile for a very long time and so I have a lot of pictures on the site..Some maybe a bit spicy but no nude or lewd pictures.

I posted about it the experience and left the site. I was so angry that I could not confront her that I wanted to scream..Witch!!! why are bothering me…I will be honest the other word flashed before my eyes but I held on to my composer.

mad

How is it that I allowed someone who is not even important to bring me to this type of anger? I was asking myself. Even now and about 30 minutes have passed my blood is still boiling. Yes, I know I belong to GOD. I know He is love. I know that I am to be light to them that dwell in darkness. I know that I am to turn the other cheek when someone strikes me. I know this girl is probably lost but Lord I am just now starting to calm down and think righteously.

I am His servant even on a Sunday afternoon. I am the light shining in the darkness. The light on a hill. The one praying for the salvation of the unsaved. I am his daughter and I desire to do His will. I need to watch as well as pray. Cause I wasn’t thinking about anything negative at all.  I visit the rooms to on different sites to invite people to view the blog and also to gather research about upcoming topics.

I can really say I understand and do have the greatest of compassion for the young ones who have been bullied online. Who have been embarrassed and have been hurt by those who have had their hearts broken. 

Nonetheless, I reported the girl but that will probably not do anything to cause her to not treat anyone this way again.

To the word…

Ephesians 4:26

King James Version (KJV)

26 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:

If anger has been a problem let’s us pray together:

Lord, forgive me for the anger that rose up in my heart. Help me to always offer good in place of evil. Give me the strength that comes from the Holy Spirit to over the evil that comes from Satan.

Thank you for washing me from the stains of this world and transforming me into one that has power to over evil.

Amen.

Coyfee out..until next time…

 

I AM A SOLDIER IN AN UNSEEN WAR FIGHTING AN UNSEEN ENEMY (PART 2)

HOLY GHOST POWER

Salutations Friends!

I am extremely excited about this session.  We have studied about Intercession, Supplication and are diving slowly into Spiritual WarFare. Let’s do a brief recap…..

We have learned about popular scriptures that can be prayed during life threatening illnesses. We learned how to prepare for battle=> 

The Helmet of Salvation-This protects your mind from thoughts that are contrary to God’s word

The Breast Plate of Righteousness-This protects your heart from the wounds of the world

The Shield of Faith-This quenches the fiery darts that are being sent at you from the enemy

The Belt of Truth-This piece reminds you to tell the Truth in the face of adversity..

The Shoes of the Gospel Peace-These shoes are given to the Children of God to share the good news effectively

The Sword of the Spirit-The word of God

Ok, so now we have been reminded about the previous studies-we will now move forward. The armour is not effective without the power that the Holy Spirit gives. The scripture gives examples of what the Holy Spirit does for us. Read the below scriptures for more info:

Acts 1.8; 2.17-21

8 But you shall receive power (ability, efficiency, and might) when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be My witnesses in Jerusalem and all Judea and Samaria and to the ends (the very bounds) of the earth

17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, God declares, that I will pour out of My Spirit upon all mankind, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy [[b]telling forth the divine counsels] and your young men shall see visions ([c]divinely granted appearances), and your old men shall dream [[d]divinely suggested] dreams.

18 Yes, and on My menservants also and on My maidservants in those days I will pour out of My Spirit, and they shall prophesy [[e]telling forth the divine counsels and [f]predicting future events pertaining especially to God’s kingdom].

19 And I will show wonders in the sky above and signs on the earth beneath, blood and fire and smoking vapor;

20 The sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the obvious day of the Lord comes—that great and notable and conspicuous and renowned [day].

21 And it shall be that whoever shall call upon the name of the Lord [[g]invoking, adoring, and worshiping the Lord—Christ] shall be saved.

John 14:26

Amplified Bible (AMP)

2But the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will cause you to recall (will remind you of, bring to your remembrance) everything I have told you.

We will take our time and review the Holy Spirit and His purpose in the life of the believer>>

Coyfee out til later…

 

 

ATTRIBUTES OF SATAN (part 4)

The Tempter

 

Image

 

Hello Readers,

We will discuss other attributes of Satan. One  attribute that comes to mind that has not discussed is Satan the Tempter. He is known to have tempted many but have you ever read what is written in Matthew 4.  Satan being bold  and using his skills to deceive ..he tempted JESUS!! 

Matthew 4

Amplified Bible (AMP)

4 Then Jesus was led (guided) by the [Holy] Spirit into the wilderness (desert) to be tempted (tested and tried) by the devil.

2 And He went without food for forty days and forty nights, and later He was hungry.

3 And the tempter came and said to Him, If You are God’s Son, command these stones to be made [[a]loaves of] bread.

4 But He replied, It has been written, Man shall not live and be upheld and sustained by bread alone, but by every word that comes forth from the mouth of God.

5 Then the devil took Him into the holy city and placed Him on [b]a turret (pinnacle, [c]gable) of the temple [d]sanctuary.

6 And he said to Him, If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down; for it is written, He will give His angels charge over you, and they will bear you up on their hands, lest you strike your foot against a stone.

7 Jesus said to him, [e]On the other hand, it is written also, You shall not tempt, [f]test thoroughly, or [g]try exceedingly the Lord your God.

8 Again, the devil took Him up on a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and the glory (the splendor, magnificence, preeminence, and excellence) of them.

9 And he said to Him, These things, all taken together, I will give You, if You will prostrate Yourself before me and do homage and worship me.

10 Then Jesus said to him, Begone, Satan! For it has been written, You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him alone shall you serve.

11 Then the devil departed from Him, and behold, angels came and ministered to Him.

Now pause for a moment, think about this? Satan thought to himself that I will attempt to deceive the Son of God..JESUS..

Now what do you think is doing to us..to you???

Ever wonder why your husband lies to you..

Your wife cheats??

 Your children stealing from you??

 Your boss just doesn’t like you much??

Does any of that sound familiar? Well guess what they are all being deceived. Because of his deception they are prime targets to be tempted to do what is wrong..

If you have been deceived and hence, have been tempted to do something that is wrong. Something that has hurt someone else..please go to them and ask for forgiveness.. Begin a new you where you do all within you to avoid the characteristics of Satan. Live your life in a manner that others may speak well of you..

Now if you have not accepted Jesus Christ into your life. And you have a desire to do so. Pray this prayer:

 Lord Jesus, I am a Sinner! I have sinned against you. I confess that without you I can do nothing. Please come into my heart and reign, rule and abide in me NOW! I ask you to SAVE me now. I acknowledge that I am now SAVED-SET APART FROM THIS WORLD!!

If you just gave your life to Jesus Christ.email me coyfeelatte@gmail.com. I would like to be the first to congratulate you!!
